May 16: International Day for Sharing Life Stories
As a follow-up to my earlier post on the importance of storytelling in social change (and the Moth GrandSlams which sold out by the way), I wanted to let the GOOD community know about the International Day of Sharing Life Stories on May 16. Check out the map and find an event near you!
Here in Los Angeles, the May 16 event "Journeys Toward Justice: Capturing the Stories of Human Rights in the Context of Migration" is being sponsored by Active Arts® of the Music Center. Yours truly is one of the storytellers. The event is 10am to 12 noon at the Dorothy Chandler Pavilion and will be hosted by Adolfo Guzman Lopez of KPCC Southern California Public Radio. Admission is free but reservations are required. To RSVP, call (213)972-2610 no later than May 13. Find more information here and on Facebook.
